DISCOVER SEPTEMBER 2016’S COOLEST STUFF
THE MOST STYLISH PRODUCTS AND RELEASES THIS MONTH
We’re clinging onto summer and enjoying the last heatwave of the year in style. This month we’ve found a couple of slick watches, an urban cycling jacket that could save your life and some tasty ginger beer among others. Following on from our August round-up, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite products and releases for the month of September.
Born from a meeting of collaborators who came together from the worlds of history, aviation, watchmaking and fashion – the AVI-8 collection of timepieces is a unique re-interpretation of the ubiquitous pilot watch. While many watch brands have borrowed from, and have pilot ranges, inside their collections – the AVI-8 range is solely dedicated to producing designs that firmly draw from both the men and machines of the skies.
CLAE AW16 Footwear Collection
Sneakers get a much-needed upgrade this season with the release of Los Angeles based brand CLAE’s Autumn/Winter 2016 collection. Designed for the modern man's wardrobe, the collection favors an elevated and contemporary aesthetic. Unexpected materials add character, while the refined silhouettes show off the quality craftsmanship. From luxury waxed full-grain leather to wool and nylon canvas and water resistant treatment, the collection incorporates functionality using the most exquisite materials.
Hollows & Fentimans Ginger Beer
A deliciously and refreshing 4% alcoholic ginger beer made using all natural ingredients. Enjoyable as a sessionable summer drink with authentic ginger taste inspired by the Thomas Fentimans recipe – perfect served with ice and a slice of lime. The introduction of a new 330ml bottle size makes it more appealing and it meets a growing consumer need being certified as gluten free also.
GREYHOURS Vision Collection
An excellence in materiality, and a refined form that doesn’t overshadow functionality, GREYHOURS launch their new ‘Vision’ collection. Modern-classic watch designs that seamlessly mould into its owner's lifestyle with no pretension. The watch brand's inspiration comes from their wish to translate time, twist the codes of luxury and to remove any superficiality from their designs to concentrate on balance and function. The new collection is composed of unisex models in six sleek colours across two designs; The Vision Shine and The Vision Classic.
Thomas & Evans No. 1 Zero Proof Drink
Thomas & Evans No.1 has been created to satisfy smart sippers with a refreshing, aromatic drink for those moments when they choose not to drink alcohol. T&E No.1 is gently sparkling and reveals flavours of green fruits, citrus peel and botanicals, layer by layer. Its intricate blend of over 20 ingredients, including silver birch charcoal filtered green fruit juices and steam-distilled botanicals, unlocks a bouquet of aromas including apple, elderflower, citrus peel and oak tincture.
Marané Swim Shorts
With the weather at its warmest, beaches and oceans beckoning, thoughts inevitably turn to swim wear and with the trend across menswear to a more tailored and fitted cut; Marané Swimwear, a burgeoning Uruguayan label, has set out to re-imagine what good swimwear for men can be. Two lifelong friends, Christine Serhal and Alessandro Aquilina, were inspired by the feeling of freedom and escape that the rugged and dramatic landscape of their hometown represented and thus Marané and the Manantiales swim short was created.
LUMO City Cycling Apparel
LUMO; UK developers of urban cycling wear launch a new range inspired by classic British designs this month. LUMO broke on to the cycling apparel market in 2015 with two successful crowdfunding campaigns. They return this autumn with three new products; The Clissold Bomber Jacket, Brixton Messenger Bag and the Holloway Gilet. All three benefit from LUMO’s LED lighting systems, cleverly integrated into their garments to maintain style and enhance safety.
